Welcome to My Classrooms

I am thrilled that Hopewell Area School District will be meeting the needs of all our learners by continuing to give the choice of two learning environments for the 2022-23 school year, both in-person and cyber. For over 20 years I have had the pleasure of serving my community as a 3rd-grade teacher in the “Ingenious Lab” at Hopewell Elementary School. Two years ago, I transitioned into the role of Cyber 2nd-4th Regular Ed Teacher/Learning Support Teacher with a team of 9 educators. This year I continue to take on the role of K-6 Cyber Elementary and Special Education Teacher, with the support of my Assistant Principal and K-6 Cyber Administrator, Mr. Gary Hutsler.

I went on to explain that my career path had changed to being a cyber teacher for the upcoming school year. The beautiful part was being able to share the WHY behind it… because that is what our children need right now.
